The friendly Smile Squad dental team will provide Victorian public primary and secondary school students with a free, high quality annual dental health examination and free follow up treatment as needed.
What is included?
At the first appointment (the check-up), Smile Squad will check your child’s teeth.
Then, depending on your child’s needs, services may include:
- fluoride varnish
- scale and clean
- fissure sealants
- a free dental pack: a toothbrush, toothpaste and information
- advice about dental health and diet
If a child needs more treatment, like a filling, Smile Squad will contact parents/guardians and make a second appointment. These extra treatments are also completely free.
The program does not include cosmetic procedures.
Who is eligible?
All students attending government schools are eligible for free treatment. They do not need a healthcare card, Medicare or the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
All students attending Virtual School Victoria are eligible. Virtual School Victoria students can contact their community dental agency to make an appointment. Use this link to find the nearest community dental clinic.
